Beautiful Cottages and Villa Homes offers 80 enchanting designs that bring forth a sense of ease and comfort often reserved for gentler times. Using artful details that borrow freely from the past, these architecturally rich plans combine paneled windows, seaside porticos and hosts of French doors to mingle wide views with light airy interior spaces that invite a "sit and watch the sunset" attitude.
This collection of plans couples the pleasing aesthetics of earlier Plantation, Old World Mediterranean and Island style homes with technical demands of a modern household. Versatile living and dining rooms tune themselves to any occasion Â— planned or cozy. Master suites with private decks and luxurious baths invite sunning and soaking. Cool covered galleries and sun-kissed courtyards blur the definition between indoor and outdoor spaces and capture unforgettable vistas.
Created by The Sater Design Collection, and published by Designs Direct Publishing, these designs fulfill the concept of home as a comfortable place that captures and nurtures the spirit of everyday life. Gloriously illustrated by Dave Jenkins and exquisitely photographed in their natural settings, the houses found in Beautiful Cottages and Villa Homes stir the senses, create dreams and invite the good life.
Features: 50 pages of homes photographed inside and out.
Contents: 80 full-color home plans with construction drawings available for every design.
Sizes: Homes range in size from 1,288 to 4,359 square feet.
Benefits: This colorful book will serve as an idea book for cottage and villa architecture, interior design, patios, pools and landscaping Â—as well as a catalog from which to order designer-quality blueprints and study plans.
